No_Mans_Sky.jpgBack on November 27, 2016  an update called the Foundation Update for No Man’s Sky  was out.  This added all lots off cool stuff.  The biggest is, being able to build bases.  With them you can of course build as you see fit.  All so used to store you resources.  You can set up spots in the base where you can recruit alien lifeforms to help research new technology, farming, engineer and weapons.  There is so much more they add which changes the game in awesome new ways.  You can read all about it  > here.

When you first load the game back up after the update.  You are given three options.  Normal mode, which is the game you all ready now.  The second one is Creative mode.  This is were you can explore and build without limits.  The third is Survival mode.  This makes the game for of a challenge.

Decided to give Creative mode a try first.  When it loads it is like starting the game from scratch.  Could see right way the game looked a lot better.  You get to start building right way, if you want.  Only simple stuff at first.  That is because you still have to play the game to get elements and the like (I think).  Not sure if I will keep playing this since I have my suit maxed out, a better weapon and ship in the main mode.

They all so made some changes to the UI as well.  It is much easier to charge up your weapon and the like.  Just have to press down on the D-pad and select charge.  All so noticed that there is less pop in while flying close to the planet surface.

Next I am going to try loading up my original save file so see if I can build a cool home base.
